Rice pudding is a pretty common dessert - the recipe I have is the best I've found but what makes it special to me is the almond. Every Christmas, my Aunt brings rice pudding and puts a single almond in it. This Norwegian tradition says that the person who finds the almond will have good luck for the new year.
- 1 cup rice
- 1 quart milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
Boil one cup of rice in water for five minutes, drain and add some milk. Let the rice absorb the milk and add the remainder. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and eggs. Add a small amount of the hot rice to egg and sugar mixture and stir. Pour mixture into the bowl of hot rice and mix. Add vanilla and cinnamon to taste.
